Drivers in Florida should be aware of a new law regarding texting while driving. Florida Statute Sec. 316.305, commonly cited as the “Florida Ban on Texting While Driving Law,” went into effect on July 1st, 2019.

The new law’s stated purpose is to improve roadway safety, to prevent crashes related to texting while driving and to reduce injuries, deaths and other costs associated with motor vehicle accidents.

The law also authorizes law enforcement officers to stop motor vehicles and issue citations as a secondary offense to persons who are texting while behind the wheel.
